Hi Sue, thank you for your response. Yes the Wilton Overton Allen born 1908 in New Mexico is my grandfather. I find his birthdate alternating a couple years in different records. I think this is because I am told from my father that he lied about his age to join the Navy early. He was kicked out of the Navy when they found out he wasn't old enough and later joined the Army. I am guessing he lied to join the Navy because he was in an orphanage and that must have been his way out? He lived in Spokane, Washington and was the County Commissioner for a long time there. The Clara Miller/Farrell that he married in 1978 was his second wife, his first wife was Persis Honshell, Persis was my Grandmother, she died early from heart disease. I haven't been able to find any birth record for my grandfather either. I only have speculation as to who his father would be but the Wilton Overton Allen that married Florence Pray seems to be the best bet for being his father, possibly from a previous marriage before Florence Pray.

If you have any additional information I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks again =)
